Committed to the early-stage founder

Vertical404 is an Atlanta-based venture capital firm committed to backing early-stage Black, Latinx and Women founders who are advancing the way we live, work, and play.

We believe that technology, along with the diverse perspectives of its creators will be the driving force behind the success of our future economy and this belief guides our investment in companies advancing the future of work, health, finance and media.

Money is one thing. But so is building a remarkable team, creating a great culture and fulfilling your full potential as a founder. We believe there is a direct correlation between the health of a founder and the performance of their company. We’re here to provide you the mentorship and hands-on support required to nurture your development as a CEO, which subsequently strengthens your company’s potential to scale.
